Clark, Dan,

I would never disparage the usefulness of the MFT's 20 mm dog holes and the numerous clever clamps and gadgets Festool and others, including esteemed members of the FOG have developed.  My point was that the PGS, in providing the ability to replicate an MFT top, among an infinity of other layouts, provides the crucial ability of making the array near perfectly orthogonal, which gives the system its superpowers.  It's this feature that I fear is lost on a small work surface, making the Parf Sticks much of the PGS superfluous and overkill for Dan's instant purpose.

I'm sure this is  merely a case of my wondering too hard.  I'll talk to my barman about it this evening.  [wink]

Cheers, Gary

I made another example of a benchtop bench Here

See reply 378 and 379.  I made it by using the MFT as a template and hand-tapped a 20 mm Brad bit to space the holes.  Not perfect, but close enough for a benchtop bench.

I made my mft replacement top using the 1400 and the shelf pin system.  TimTool's technique is infinitely clever and is provided in his plans for his Larger workbench.

Here's an article in German showing a mini-workbench that uses Festool clamps:  mini-bench. Interesting idea.
